|Hi! I am a big fan of poetry, so that will be my main focus here.|
Open up your eyes and see the world a different way
Take off those rose colored glasses because they have no reason to stay
You're free from your thoughts and perceptions from now on
Isn't it freeing to have those gone?
You can be you without your inner critic telling you what you can't be
When you had your inner critic, you couldn't really see
Of course, you'll still have your inner critic, but it won't be so loud
And, finally, of yourself, you can be proud
Because you now know the you, you always were meant to be
Without those thoughts and perceptions blocking you, you can just be you and I can just be me
Love Vs Hate
Which one is stronger? That, I need to rate
Well, I say they both are, but in different ways
When you are in a love/hate relationship, it's hard to say
But I know deep down that love conquers all
Even though, technically speaking, hate makes you feel small
So, all in all, I'd say that love is the winner
But, if I forget hate, in both this poem and in life, am I not a sinner?
Music speaks to my soul
So much so, I write poems that sort of resemble a song
But music is only the beginning
And so is my poetry which tends to be long
I am inspired by everything around me
Even things I can't, technically, see
I still write songs in a poem format
Because I know now where the music's at
Music lies in my soul
So much so, it comes out in a poem to me
Since I've been making music and writing them
I see what the eyes can't see
When I look in the mirror, whom do I see?
Do I see you, or do I see me?
If I see you, I need either a new mirror or a new pair of eyes
Because I'm not dressed in your disguise
I'm dressed in my own and I know that to be true
So, I hope I see me and I hope you see you
I believe you're the one for me
But the problem is, the future, I cannot see
So, I pray you're gonna catch me when I fall
Because, if not, you're just someone I know and that's all
When I see the chance, I dance
Knowing it's a dance of romance
I atare into my partners eyes
And stare into his soul which is full of one surprise
He loves me like he loves a lover
And there is no going back to someone else because we have each other
So, we dance a dance
And this dance is full of only romance
I would wish for peace among us all
Both in the home and out of it too
Because, without peace, there are fights all around
And this, I'd hope, would bring it anew
A disease cripples your being
And the crowd doesn't know because they're not really seeing
They don't see beyond what is shown
But, behind the scenes, a disease can make you moan and groan
What is faith but just belief in something or someone?
Faith gets the job done
But that's not the most important part
Faith needs to be both belief in yourself as well as your own heart
Before you can believe in another, you have to believe in you
Because, if you don't, how can anything you say be true?
So, believe in yourself and that will ultimately lead to trusting yourself because belief comes before trust
Otherwise, who's to say you trust yourself enough to believe? Trust is, after all, like dust
If you don't trust in your own instincts, there is no belief there
So, please be careful with yourself because you are the only one that, about yourself, truly cares
You are the only one who ca...
Can I even call you that?
Do you even deserve that kind of respect?
I know you're not perfect
None of us are
But to go this far?
To treat my mom, your wife, with no respect at all?
What are we? Insects standing tall?
Give me a reason to respect, and love, you
Give me a reason and I'll do the best I can do
You hurt my mom, you hurt me
Doesn't matter if it doesn't make sense to you. It's just how I like to be
Someone who respects, and loves, my mom more than you apparently do
So, please leave this place before I make you
Not with my "magical powers", but with God by my side
Because this marriage needs to be nullified
You're the only one who can sign the divorce papers toget...
I'd give charity to the poor
Because they need more
They need more than we do
And we need to give to them what they need too
I'm clay to some, but not to me
You can shape me any way you like
But, I'm still going to be me, see?
And you can just take a hike
Never once did I scream out
Never once did I shout out loud
Never once didn't I do what I was told
Never once was I bold
Never once did I face the music
Never once was I the one that was picked
Never once did I do the unthinkable
Never once did I drink the undrinkable
Never once did I dance the dance
Never once did I fall for romace
Never once did I fight the fight
Never once did I fight with all of my might
But, yet, I screamed internally
But, yet, I shouted out loud inside of me
But, yet, I did what I was told
But, yet, I had no reason to be bold
But, yet, there was no music to face
But, yet, I wasn't picked because I wasn't the correct one to embrace
But, yet, I didn't do the unthinkable ...
We all want the world to be inspired by us, right? Or, at least, I do. What inspires you? Because, in order to be inspiring, there must be something that inspires you. Write a letter and tag it 'inspiration' and 'engage'. Let's see how many people can come up with something inspiring.
Please comment below when done.
I was waiting for my friend
But she wasn't here yet
The rain kept pouring on my umbrella
And my thoughts were "don't fret"
She'll be here soon
But she didn't come
The sad part is that I thought she would
So, I walked away humming a sad hum
Have a little faith. It goes a long way
But have faith in what? What makes you want to, on this earth, stay?
My faith is in God up above. He could be all around me
Not only is He above. He is everywhere you can't see
Have a little faith. Even a little is enough
It helps you on your way. Even through the times that are tough
So, just know that you're safe with a little. Because a little can turn into a lot
Even if you think it can't, it will. Because faith is the one thing that'll, on this earth, give you a shot
Say something. I'm giving up on you
Where's the guy I knew?
Please say something so I know you're still there
Please say something and show that you care
The wind is howling like the swirling storm inside
Couldn't keep it in. Heaven knows I tried
Don't let them in; don't let them see
Be the good girl you always have to be
Don't let them know
Well, now they know. Let it go.
I feel a tornado taking place within me
It isn't something for anyone to see
But, yet, I wish they saw it
Maybe that'll help it a bit
Be the good girl I always have to be
Outside of me
Easier said than done, is what I say
But, I still feel what I feel and it won't go away
They have no idea what I go through
Each and every day is a battle won by few
I don't want this to be a battle, but it is one
It's a battle taking place where know one has, before, gon...
What is love to you?
Write an open letter about the prompt above, and tag it 'love'.
This is a tale like no other:
A tale that has each of us connected
It starts out years ago and hasn't ended just yet
And its a tale that has each of us protected
My story started out before I was born
My mom and my biological mom met
She tried to convince her to give birth to me
But she didn't want to just yet
Once I was born, I was dry skinned
I didn't breathe right away
The next day, I developed a fever of at least 104°
And, in the hospital, I did stay
I stayed there for at least two weeks
And the doctors weren't certain why the fever came about
They weren't happy with my biological mom
At her, they probably did shout
I was given to my mom
But the story doesn't end there
It's a little l...
The perfect date is when two people who love each other are dating
Doesn't matter where you go, or what you do
If you love each other, that's all that counts
It doesn't matter the time or place; it's only for you two
Moving on, letting go
Holding on to tomorrow
But I don't necessarily need to hold on to tomorrow anymore
I could hold on to today, and still move on and soar
That doesn't mean I don't have much more to do
There's much work to be done, and here are just a few:
Let go of my past so I can LIVE a future
Every moment counts, even though I'm unsure
Unblock the blockers that block me from being
Change the color of my glasses, so I can unblock myself from not seeing
Let go of what's right and wrong
Remember that my weakness's are my strengths, so, technically, I am always strong
Be resilient in a time of need
Take my feet on a journey with speed
(Even though I don't meant the last one literally
You either put on makeup or put on a smile
Because you don't want people to see the real you
But the real you is hidden in the makeup and in the smile
You all know that to be true
So why put on makeup or a smile?
Just because you're afraid of what society will say?
Try to ignore them and be true to you
And then, they'll have a day
"Why does she not have on makeup? She's prettier that way!
Why isn't she following us?"
I wonder whom they're following because they're not following their own heart
After all, they're the ones making the fuss
Follow your own heart and wear whatever you'd like
If you feel the mask is best to wear, I'd tell you it's not
But it is your choice, after all. You have a...
What is a moment?
A fleeting memory
It goes away in a second
And, it, your eyes can't see
Please make that moment last
Hug a person you know dearly
Give charity to the poor
And don't forget to thank God that you can see
These moments don't last a lifetime like they tell you in the movies
Make those moments not only a memory, but a gift
Cherish these moments like they are your last
Because, one day, they may drift
You gave me hardships to battle on my own
It's like I am a dog, and you threw me a bone
But, the thing is, I don't particularly like them
I'm my own kind of gem
I will survive
I am, after all, still alive
And I will continue living
And I will continue giving
I will survive Your tests
And I know I will come out the best
But I don't know for certain how well I'll do
I just know that I'll be amongst the few that survive and come out better because of You
Humanity as a whole
Needs either a more common goal or needs a new goal
Because we're hurting each other instead of healing each other
And that doesn't make me think we're like sisters or brothers
Yes, sisters and brothers are siblings and those tend to hurt each other non-violently
But the world I live in is not something to see
It might be my perspective that needs changing
Or it might be the world that's aging
Either way, the world I live in is not the same as years ago
The world I live in is just not something any mother would be proud of, so...
Change your behavior to change your attitude
And, once that's done, show some gratitude
Maybe one person can change the world and humanities poin...
I'm a champion and you're gonna hear me roar
Until my throat is sore
Just because I don't look like a lioness, doesn't mean I'm not
I could have a roar you know nothing about, so please don't hit me in my soft spot
I have a hidden roar no one knows about
Because, ever since I was young, I was taught never to shout
So, all these years my roar had to be quieted
So, you can imagine how big of a roar I have hidden away in my head
Just because I look small, doesn't mean I'm not a lioness
And, just because I look cute, doesn't mean I don't know how to dress
I am a lioness, hidden away with no place to go
I'll just continue hiding that side of me until it's time for it to show
I'm too emotional is what you tell me
But, even though you can't, it, see
I am a sensitive person who just happens to get emotional when the need arises
I am, after all, full of surprises
I don't see the sunshine after the rain
Of course I don't because the rain wasn't plain
And I don't know how to get rid of the rain as easily as you do
So, please stop comparing me to you
I am too deep in the tunnel to see the end of it
But that doesn't stop me from continuing on, bit by bit
Although you might think I can't see because there isn't a source of light
That doesn't make me not want to hold on tight
I have a Torch that helps me on my way
His Name is God and He is here to stay
So, you mind your...
If you tell me that the world is yellow, I'll believe you, because YOU told me
I haven't seen any proof to the contrary
You see, you can tell me that the world is yellow, and, if there's trust between us, I'll believe you
But why is that? Is the world even yellow? Is that even true?
Please take the time to notice what your parents do for you
They shop for you, and clean for you too
Take the time to appreciate what they do for you because there might come a day when you will not be able to give thanks to them
They are, after all, our parents who raised us into gems
Thank you, mommy
